Metrics Driven Development

Description:

I've been reformed. Before I was blind, now I can see. How was I
living in a world where I was making changes to our app and product
without visibility into how that change _actually_ affected our
success? At Paperless Post we're using a number of different tools and
strategies for making small incremental changes to our application and
measuring their success. I'll talk about Redis, Rollout,
Graphite/Statsd and a number of real world scenarios and use cases.

Bio:

Aaron Quint is a born and raised Brooklynite now living in the Bay
Area. He is the CTO of Paperless Post, a Rubyist, a JS-er, an avid
opensourcer and an amateur charcutier. Twitter: http://twitter.com/aq

    Great talk. Anyone looking to join a small highly profitable startup that is using rails 3.1, machine learning, and processing tremendous amounts of data check it out at adaptly.com and send me an email.

    I videotaped last night's awesome presentation on my iPhone. There may be gaps and it features various angles of the back of Luke Melia's head, but happy to share the video with the group. Will coordinate with Josh and Bryan.

    Elissa: Drinks start at 8:30, unsure as to how long tab running, but imagine at least an hour or so.

    Malcolm: Unfortunately no. Will work to try and perfect the video setup moving forward.

    Josh - What time can folks show up for the drinks sponsored by Heroku - what time will the tab close? Thanks.

  • Josh K.

    Unfortunately if everyone who RSVPs shows up we'll be quite full. That said if you're on the wait list and want to come please do so, but please leave the seats for those who RSVP'd.

    Also don't forget that we're doing drinks at Revival sponsored by Heroku after the meetup so please feel free to come to that regardless of attending the event.

    I had a similar question to Michael -- is there still a chance to get in if we're on the wait list? Thanks!

    If I'm on the waiting list, does that mean that I shouldn't come? Just moved to NYC for a few months and would like to meet the local Rubyists but don't want to make the trek to be turned away at the door!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
